Hello MSTC Members, I do hope you have been enjoying this summer of 2019 with it’s roller coaster weather and like me dodging the rain and getting in as much outdoor tennis as possible.
The board of MSTC met last night and we have decided to switch our website to a new provider. It is called Wild Apricot. This is the website that is being used by Sitzmark Ski Club. Their webmaster Sally Hed Dahlquist will be working with our communications Director, Meredith Burks to make this transition for us. When completed this is what we think this website will do for us. This will be a central site where we can send and receive messages, update our personal information, receive information on current events, sign up and pre-pay for events, keep our membership current with renewal reminders and renew our membership on-line if we prefer. We also think this website will attract more tennis players to our events. This is a website that is designed specifically for clubs like ours. We are excited and hope you will be pleased with what it can do for you.
In addition I want to let you know three fine individuals have agreed to join the board. Cathy Hedberg will be our new Treasurer. Ron Saver has agreed to serve as Vice President and Arnie Wicker has also agreed to join the board (his specific position has yet to be determined). For now these are board appointees and you will be able to give them the thumbs up vote in October at our annual “election”. You will be hearing more about these individual’s contributions in the next newsletter which will bring you an update on the Labor Day Picnic, our indoor tennis schedule, the website switch, etc. Stay tuned and don’t ever hesitate to contact me.
